Ratio variables are interval variables, but with the added condition that 0 (zero) of the measurement indicates none of that variable. So, the temperature measured in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit is not a ratio variable because 0°C does not mean no temperature. However, the temperature measured in Kelvin is a ratio variable as 0 Kelvin (often called absolute zero) indicates no temperature. Other examples of ratio variables include height, mass, distance, and many more. The name "ratio" reflects that you can use the ratio of measurements. So, for example, ten meters is twice the distance of 5 meters.

No issues.Our institution is developing an SRACP evaluation program, but we have found it challenging to identify suitable outcome indicators. We’re attempting to evaluate the program, and it would be better if we could show how it has impacted society. Could you offer us some suggestions on where to look for some suitable scales?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
